University of Oregon
Dear UO Student,
As we approach the start of fall term, many of you have asked about the availability of tuition protection and insurance programs. Like many other universities, we’ve partnered with GradGuard™ to provide you the option of purchasing a tuition insurance plan to complement the UO refund schedule.
The timing of a withdrawal at the University of Oregon determines the refund percentage for tuition and fees. The optional tuition insurance plan from GradGuard broadens the scope of the UO’s existing refund policy by ensuring reimbursement for tuition, housing and other payments if a student withdraws for a covered medical reason such as an illness, accident, or mental health issue at any time during the term. The plan does not cover a change in the university’s mode of instruction or withdrawal due to fear of the presence of COVID-19.
You or your family can purchase the insurance prior to the start of each term. For fall, the deadline for enrollment is September 28 at midnight.
We recommend that you carefully review the coverage details on the GradGuard website before purchasing. You can also call (877) 794-6603 to connect with their tuition insurance specialists.
The University of Oregon is not compensated if you choose to purchase the tuition insurance plan. The enrollment date is based on the UO academic calendar. Enrollment must be before the start of term for your program of study.
We hope this option will provide additional peace of mind for our students and families as we enter a new school year.
